Ten Years Today!


Today is My Rare One's and my 10th anniversary! So I thought I'd tell you all how she came by her name. It's from the chorus of one of my favourite Scottish folk songs called The Tiree Love Song:

Ho ree ho ro, my bonnie wee girl,
Ho ree ho ro, my fair one,
Will you come away with me, love,
To be my own, my rare one?

Here's a beautiful acappella version sung by Canadian folksinger Eileen McGann:



Happy Anniversary, My Rare One! *smooch* I love you!
